SEND (Student Exchange: Nippon Discovery)
Before studying at one of our overseas partner universities, students first gain a fuller understanding of Japanese society, culture, and industry. They then go to an English or Chinese speaking country, where they are immersed in the language and culture.
While studying abroad, students are given opportunities to teach Japanese and introduce Japanese culture at local schools, etc. to gain keener intercultural insights. Upon returning home, they give presentations about their experiences and achievements at a Study-Abroad Completion Presentation, school festival, speech contest, international exchange event, and other occasions.

Students are encouraged to work as interns at multinational corporations in Japan as well as while they are studying overseas, so that they can apply the language skills they have gained and lay the groundwork for future career paths. Kyorin University provides students with internship opportunities in Malaysia as well as the chance to teach Japanese in New Zealand. Today over 120 Kyorin students work as interns at some 60 private corporations and government agencies across Japan.
Volunteering in Japan and Abroad
The foundation of Kyorin University rests on an undying commitment to being compassionate and making the most of one's talents and abilities in the service to humanity. To nurture this spirit of service, students are encouraged to put their language skills to good use in volunteer work at the university's affiliated hospital, local community events, and tourist sites.
